Desperados III Review

Posse Up

HIGH Hyper-crunchy team-based tactics. Lesbian cowgirls.

LOW Playing 3/4ths of the boat level without knowing I could swim.

WTF Why can’t I pick up ammo and give it to a teammate?


Phoenix Point Review

The Forever War

HIGH Rich tactical gameplay, sharp writing, great tactical UI.

LOW Inconsistent pacing, numerous technical issues, simplistic AI.

WTF If alien captures are critical, why are non-lethal weapons so weak?


John Wick Hex Review

I Will Never Be The Baba Yaga

HIGH Stalking my prey and exacting righteous vengeance.

LOW Getting shot by a dude who literally appeared out of nowhere.

WTF Why does everyone think they can take John Wick in single combat?


Nobunaga’s Ambition: Taishi Review

A Singular Ambition

HIGH  A fascinating blend of strategy and history rare for console gaming.

LOW The real-time tactical combat is often slow and laborious.

WTF Why are some of the most helpful menus tucked behind DS4 touchpad presses?


Starpoint Gemini Warlords Review

 Second Star To The Right, Straight On To My Space Station

HIGH It splits the difference between Freelancer and Masters of Orion

LOW …by building one game and grafting it onto the spine of the other.

WTF Awkward mouse and keyboard controls for a PC exclusive.
